governor mitt romney and on "meet the press" this weekend where he accused the president of dishonesty and had this warning about the president's second term. >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from and that is that he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. and whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the foundation of his second term. i think it's rotting it away. >> wait, there's a little bit more, "the washington post" obtaining an internal memo that shows an outside health adviser warning of trouble ahead for the rollout. telling the administration, quote, i do not believe the relevant members of the administration understand the president's vision or have the capability to carry it out. >> looking back, people are going to be scratching their heads for years going how did they make this mistake? so how do mistakes like this happen inside the west wing? >> well, look, i think that's a fairly devastating story. >> joining me now is d

, mock debates, he and john kerry playing mitt romney. first session on saturday went okay. sunday night was a horrible experience. the president was like he was in the denver debate, lethargic, professorial, didn't seem like he was fighting for the job. at times peevish, nasty to governor kerry sitting in for mitt romney. they were panicked. that prep ended and you had a scene which we write about in double down, plouffe, axelrod, debate advisers staying up to well past midnight saying what do we do, what do we do? how can we turn this around? we can't do down this path. they did what they called an intervention with the president. four aides and the president alone meeting to try to find how to turn things around. in short in the scene the president said, as you said, i'm not sure i can do this. they did a couple of things, how he needed to change his state of mind about it. they gave him one-liners, debate on a page to try to just come up with anticipating the questions, coming up with one-liners to use in the debate, and the president resolved he was going to do it. they also gave hi

of the campaign actually happened on your show when bill clinton had this to say about mitt romney. >> the real issue ought to be what has governor romney advocated in the campaign that he will do as president? who has president obama and what does he propose to do? how do these things stack up against each other? that's the relevant thing. there is nothing in terms of getting up and going to the office and basically performing the essential functions of the office, a man that's been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualifications threshold. >> so here we have the former president of the united states, a democrat, praising mitt romney's business record, which the obama campaign was visibly trashing on the air, so it was a little counterproductive and in fact, apparently caught the attention from hillary clinton who suggested from her aids that bill couldn't go there anymore. >> also a couple bizarre insights into that relationship, one they played golf together but can't finish the 18 holes and when president obama walks off he saids to an aid reportedly that bill clinton

on christie from the vetting team from romney's vp search, it described in the back this according to the "new york times." romney's team was left with questions about potential land mines involving christie. a defamation lawsuit early in his political career. a securities and exchange settlement involving his brother and medical history. beth i hadder who is led the search committee told the new york times in a statement the paper was arranged by christie aide and governor christie complied fully with the romney campaign's request for do you means in a timely manner including a medical reporter from his internist and cardiologist. not complete denials, but a statement of fact. according to reports on the book, romney's super secret vetting process was known as project goldfish and potential candidates were known as fish names. putter fish was him. filet o fish was rob portman and pescado was marco rubio. get it? as both get raised, they are polling better than anybody else, both ever losing bipartisan shine. clinton remains a popular figure second only to christie, the percentage of folks who
, the romney/ryan ticket was almost a romney/christie ticket. the new jersey governor was on mitt romney short list not once but -- >> twice. >> the reason it didn't go much farther? >> he had christie on the first short list. he crosses his name off. he's leaning towards paul ryan. >> reporter: romney's advisers pressured him to reconsider chris christie. in the end there were two obstacles. christie couldn't keep his day job and fund raise due to new jersey law and the book says he wasn't as forthcoming in the vetting process as other candidates. now, beth meyers, a long-time aide to mitt romney said to the "new york times" that chris christie complied fully in the vetting process but when you look at what "the new york times" is reporting about this book, the unanswered questions just kind of go on and on, about a defamation lawsuit against the governor from earlier in his political career as well as the names and documentation of his household employees. as well as information about his medical history. there's even more than that, chris. >> boy, oh, boy, that book probably going to sell f

mitt romney had another issue with the governor. that would be chris christie's weight. romney marvelled at christie's girth, his difficulties in making his way down the narrow aisle of the campaign bus. watching a video of christie without his suit jacket on romney cackled to his aides, guys, look at that. that sounds pretty high school. chris christie, if i were him and i liked the guy, i would be ticked of something putting off questions about the vetting not getting answers. >> it was clear during the campaign and after that the convention that the relationship between christie's staff and christie in particular in the campaign were rough. and i think there were raw feelings. >> because he stood with the president on sandy? >> even before that. that happened afterwards, but even before that coming out of the convention we had stories of christie being problematic behind the stage, being upset after the convention speech. >> he'd be a terrible vice presidential nominee. there's nothing about that man that says vice president. it's like barbara streisand once said. i'm either
off the ground and began to get a decent amount of national exposure for backing mitt romney for president. >> how much are you looking to raise? and is this going to be part of the ads that i assume your super pac is going to put out? >> the unfortunate part of politics is, our voice is directly in relationship to how much money we have. i'm not taking a paycheck. i'm doing this for god and country. >> but as mother jones points out in a terrific piece of reporting on zinke's scheme to financially support his own campaign, looks like his super pac paid more than $26,000 to a company called continental divide international. and according to zinke's linkedin page, he happens to be ceo of that same company, in other words zinke set up a super pac that happened to cut a $26,000 check to his own company. zinke seems to be taking full advantage of citizens united. prior to the exploits, it was a show on comedy central that exhibited those effects. but the reality has caught up with the satire. and there's nothing funny about it. vo: it's that time of year again. medicare open enro

to and even then at the very last minute. under romney-care in massachusetts, in many ways, this was the template of the affordable care act. this is where things stood after one month, 123 people have seened up. granted, it is one state, there are 34 states using the federal obama care website. that's about one-third of 1%. after otwo months in massachusetts, just 2,300 people have enrolled. it was only after 11 months under the threat of a penalty about to be imposed that more than 36,000 people in massachusetts would go on to enroll. most of them didn't enroll until that 11-month mark. so obama care can work. it won't kick in until the end of next march, five months from now. getting it to work depends on getting the problems ironed out and getting americans of all ages signed up. the obama administration needs to straighten out the political mess it's created. it's not just one future cabinet secretary at stake. this is the fate of the democratic party and beyond it is tied to whether obama care succeeds. the short term, that means getting the website fixed. in the long
advisers were considering replacing him. another revelation mitt romney considered chris christie as his vice president candidate before deciding on paul iran. >>> a big i told you so with more americans dropped by their insurance carriers because of obama care. republicans have been quick to point out they predicted this exact scenario back in 2010 even before that when the president was making a lot of promises that so far have not panned out. chief congressional correspondent dana bash has more. >> the gentleman from ohio, mr. boehner. >> reporter: march 2010 then minority leader john boehner came to the floor. he issued this warning. >> look at this bill! ask yourself do you really believe that if you like the health plan that you have that you can keep it? no, you can't. >> reporter: it's just one example of a republican effort before the health care bill became law of the land to push back on this presidential sales pitch. >> if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. no one will take it away no matter what. >> reporter: that was the su
